ARTILLERY CORPS, WASHINGTON GRAYS

FOREWORD 



As a matter of duty to those whose names are hereinafter recorded, 
as well as to those who may be related by ties of blood to those who 
are dead, this list of members of the "Artillery Corps, Washington 
Grays" who served in the Union Army during the War of the Rebellion, 
1 861-1865, has been compiled. 

To those who are conversant with the history of the City and State 
for the last fifty years and more, no word of explanation will be 
necessary, but as this volume may fall into the hands of some one to 
whose mind the query may present itself: "Who were the Washington 
Grays?" a single note of interpretation may be useful and welcome. 

Being fully convinced of the utility of a well regulated Volunteer 
Corps in a republican government, as well in time of peace as in war, 
some members of the Second Company of Washington Guards, 
Captain John Swift, which had served during the War of Eighteen 
Hundred and Twelve, in the Brigade of General Thomas Cadwalader, 
met together at the public house of Daniel Rubicam, No. 20 S. Sixth 
Street, Philadelphia, on April 19, 1822, with the view of forming a 
body of picked men, whose perfect drill, thorough organization, 
absolute discipline and uniform gentlemanly deportment in and out 
of uniform would claim and deserve the support and respect of a 
discriminating community, and establish for themselves a reputation 
of an "easy first" in the particular line of its justifiable ambition. 

The names of those who agreed to inaugurate and carry out this 
project, were John Swift, Andrew Donaldson, John Banks, Robert 
Steele, D. Allans, L. A. Lyon, W. H. Hay, Samuel Davies, Cephas G. 
Childs, Charles Goodman, Henry Leeman, C. E. Harrison, Jacob R. 
Beidelman, P. P. Gaskill, Samuel C. Rogers, Henry Bird, J. A. Hayes, 
J. Y. Davis , George M. Eyre, Charles Lukens, Henry Billington, 



ui 



Stephen Desgranges, Joseph Worrell, Jr., Joseph W. Taylor, Joseph 
Rumsey, Jr., Benjamin E. Carpenter, Francis P. MacCalla and John 
Y. Clark. Charles Goodman presided and Charles Lukens was secre- 
tary. 

They resolved to form a Volunteer Corps of Light Infantry, the 
color of the uniform to be gray and of domestic manufacture. Meet- 
ings were held in taverns, as hotels were then called, drills were had in 
the public squares or in the streets, as armories were considered too 
expensive luxuries ; uniforms were procured and owned by the members, 
the arms were loaned by the State, and a receipt taken therefor. 

John Swift, who became Mayor of Philadelphia, was elected the 
first Captain, he was supported by competent and painstaking subordi- 
nates, whose pride it was to contribute in every manner possible to 
the avowed laudable ambition of the Company. 

Alacrity in absorbing the instruction offered, bore its desired 
result, and as the Corps grew in reputation, its friends increased in 
numbers, and it was not long before the young men in the community 
for whom military matters had an attraction were anxious to become 
identified with an organization whose high aims and resolves were 
being realized, and had already attracted the favorable attention of all 
classes of citizens. 

It was the practice of the "Grays" to undergo a tour of duty about 
the Fourth of July, going to some nearby town in our own or a neighbor- 
ing State, or into camp in some convenient locality, amid pleasant and 
congenial surroundings, near to a good hotel, where meals could be 
procured. 

It may excite no little surprise that such excursions should con- 
sume a matter of ten days; but we must consider that in the then 
limited transportation facilities, great delay was encountered, for 
instance, in going to the City of Reading, the Corps marched to the 
west side of the Schuylkill River, then took the inclined plane rail- 
road, thence by canal to within a few miles of Reading, and then 
marched into that place. No matter where the Corps went the result 
was invariably the same, the press and the people delighted to do them 
honor, and in a number of instances their presence and deportment 
enkindled a spirit of emulation which resulted in the formation of 
military companies founded upon the same lines, which not only 
created pride and ambition in the individual, but also reflected credit 
upon its locality which gave it birth, and in more than one instance the 
"Grays" had the pleasure to receive a visit from and entertain some 
of its foster children. 

iv 



On June 29, 1826, the Corps left Philadelphia with the intention 
of proceeding to Newark, N. J., expecting to remain over the Fourth 
of July. They took steamboat to Trenton, N. J., then marched to 
New Brunswick, where they were met by a committee consisting of 
Colonel J. Munson Clark and Captain J. L. Dickinson, of the Four- 
teenth Regiment of N. Y. S. Militia, who offered such inducements 
that the trip to Newark was abandoned and they proceeded to New 
York, crossed the North River to Hoboken and went into camp upon 
the private grounds of Colonel John Stevens, until the morning of the 
Fourth of July, when they crossed to New York and participated in the 
parade, with the usual result, unbounded respect and admiration was 
accorded them, and the papers exhorted the young men of the City 
to form a similar organization, which should be the equal of any in 
the country. This resulted in the formation of the "Tompkins 
Guard," which afterward achieved a national reputation; so it cannot 
be denied that these excursions, expensive as they were, entailing a 
severe tax upon the members as they did, resulted in invaluable 
ultimate good to the country inasmuch as it was the means of creating 
a desire for military knowledge in widely separate localities which 
become a source of instruction and benefit in a time of greatest need 
in the country's crisis. It was not so much men, for they offered 
themselves in great numbers; but the instruction, as to how and 
what to do, in a manner that would result in the greatest benefit to 
the country at large. 

As for the Corps itself, no matter in what aspect it appeared, 
individually or collectively, it was always creditable, as citizen 
soldiers or in the quieter walk of private life, they conducted them- 
selves in a manner that produced a lasting effect, satisfactory to 
themselves, and a source of just pride to the community to which they 
belonged ; at home or abroad they excited the liveliest admiration and 
respect, and created a desire for the establishment of similar bodies 
that in turn should disseminate a like reputation and influence. 

In whatever civic function, where there was the least degree of 
military flavor the Grays were always expected to perform its distinc- 
tive part, and for over fifty years it stood unrivalled in this respect. 

The Corps made its first parade July i, 1822, with four (4) 
officers and forty-two (42) men, under command of Captain John Swift. 

September, 1824, it paraded three (3) officers and sixty (60) men, 
under command of Captain Cephas G. Childs, as escort to General 
Lafayette, on the occasion of his visit to America, accompanying him 
as far as Chester, Pa., on his journey to Washington, D. C. 



General Lafayette was elected an Honorary Member of the Corps, 
October 24, 1824. 

On June 27, 1827, the title was changed to "Light Artillery Corps, 
Washington Grays." 

February 22, 1832, the one hundredth anniversary of the birth 
of General George Washington, the Corps, under the command of 
Captain Cephas G. Childs, with three (3) officers and thirty-seven 
(37) men, made a pilgrimage to Mount Vernon, taking with them a 
sarcophagus, in which the remains of General Washington were 
placed. At the time of this visit they secured a lock of his hair, which 
was placed in a medallion, the same being now in the possession of the 
Corps. 

When General Andrew Jackson, President of the United States, 
visited Philadelphia on June 5, 1833, the Corps paraded as his escort. 

The Corps participated in the Buck Shot War in December, 1838. 

On June 3, 1843, the title was again changed to that of "Artillery 
Corps, Washington Grays." 

It participated and did good service in the Native American 
riots January, 1844, and in the Kensington and Southwark riots 
in May and July of the same year. 

In 1846 the Corps tendered its services, through the Governor of 
Pennsylvania, to the President of the United States, as United States 
Infantry during the Mexican War. The tender was not accepted but 
five (5) members of the Corps went out as officers in the Regular and 
Volunteer Army. 

The Corps acted as guard of honor to the remains of ex-President 
John Quincy Adams, while lying in state in Independence Hall, 
March 7, 1848. 

In April, 1848, the Honorable Henry Clay was elected an Honor- 
ary Member of the Corps. The Corps escorted his remains and acted 
as special guard of honor while they were lying in state in Independence 
Hall, July 2, 1852. 

The Corps paraded March 11, 1857, at the funeral of Dr. Elisha 
Kent Kane, the noted Arctic explorer, and acted as special guard of 
honor. And many similar occasions found them in the foremost 
place. 

The last and most important event in which the Corps partici- 
pated, just before the breaking out of hostilities in 1861, was the firing 
of the salute at the raising of the first thirty-four star flag over Inde- 
pendence Hall, by President-elect Abraham Lincoln, on the morning 
of February 22, 1861. 

vi 



Standing in front of the Hall upon a temporary platform, hat and 
coat off, he pulled the halyards raising the flag to the peak of the staff 
above the roof of the building. As the sun just rising kissed the 
quivering folds of the national emblem, a cheer arose from thousands 
of loyal throats that was an earnest of the unflinching devotion of the 
City of Brotherly Love, a devotion which was never relaxed until the 
echo of the last gun had died away, and the rebellion had sunk like 
Lucifer, never to rise again. 

Fort Sumter was fired upon on Friday, April 12, 1861, and 
capitulated on Sunday the 14th. The President issued his proclama- 
tion calling for seventy-five thousand men to defend the Union. The 
Grays held a meeting and resolved to offer its services at once and 
recruit the Company to its full strength. No sooner were the books 
opened than hundreds poured in eager to serve with the Grays. So 
much excellent material offered, it was determined to form two 
Companies, and there would have been no difficulty experienced in 
getting treble the number in the two companies which were attached 
to the Seventeenth Pennsylvania Volunteers, commanded by Colonel 
Frank E. Patterson. There was delay in starting, owing to the fact 
that the government insisted that no troops should be allowed 
to leave for Washington unless fully equipped and able to success- 
fully repel a brutal attack similar to that made upon the Sixth 
Massachusetts Regiment while going through Baltimore in April, 
1861. 

Forming on the west side of Washington Square on May 8th, 
1861, the regiment marched to the railroad depot at Broad and Prime 
Streets and started for Washington, arriving at Perryville the same 
afternoon, remained there all night, and the next morning were loaded 
on five transports, the railroad bridges between the Susquehanna 
River and Baltimore having been destroyed, reaching Baltimore early 
in the afternoon, were confronted by a formidable mob, and the battery 
which had joined the column at Perryville was rushed upon the wharf 
unlimbered for action, the two companies of the Grays supporting. 
In the face of this show of force and determination the courage of the 
rioters seemed to vanish for there was no offensive demonstration. 
The regiment took train for Washington, where it arrived late that 
night, slept in vacant stores, and the next day was marched to and 
quartered in the Capitol until the following Sunday, when it went into 
camp at Kalorama. After remaining here about two weeks, took up 
the march into Virginia via Williamsport, thence to Charlestown and 
Martinsburg, in the vicinity of which it remained until the termination

of its first enlistment, when it returned to Philadelphia and was 
mustered out. 

The companies were not re-enlisted as units, but the men sought 
positions where they could be found in Pennsylvania organizations 
or those of neighboring states. The knowledge and experience these 
men carried with them made their services of infinite value, and no 
matter where circumstances placed them, not one of them ever proved 
unworthy of the school in which they had been reared, and on every 
battlefield on which the fierce passions of men had unbridled sway, 
where death claimed its victims by the thousands, some Gray proved 
himself worthy to represent the corps by chivalrous conduct or glorious 
death. 

While the first enlisted men fought no fierce battle, it preserved 
the patriotic line of defence, which said to deliberate treason, "thus 
far and no farther shalt thou go," while behind its unbroken line was 
enrolled, recruited and equipped the finest army the world has ever seen. 

As soon as it became certain that the two companies A and F 
recruited as a part of the Seventeenth Regiment would be actively 
engaged in the field, there appeared in the morning papers a notice 
calling upon the honorary and contributing members of the "Artillery 
Corps Washington Grays" over 45 years of age to meet at the Wetherill 
House, on Sansom Street west of Sixth, on the evening of the 17th of 
April, 1861, for the purpose of forming a reserve Corps to suppress riot 
or sedition and aid the lawfully constituted authorities in preserving 
the peace and upholding the majesty of the law, during the absence of 
the active command. This notice was signed by Cephas G. Childs, 
Peter C. EUmaker, Joseph M. Thomas, George M. Wharton and Jacob 
Bennett. 

The result exceeded the greatest expectations, young men 
presented themselves in such numbers that it was found necessary to 
adjourn, to meet at Sansom Street Hall on the evening of April 19th, 
when a regimental organization was effected and a committee appointed 
to select officers for the various subdivisions. When the committee 
reported, it was found every field, line and staff officer with but one 
exception, had been at some time connected with the "Artillery Corps 
Washington Grays," and the exception was a "Philadelphia Gray." 

The first Colonel was Peter C. Ellmaker, and the name adopted 
was "Washington Gray Reserves," which the popular tongue soon 
corrupted into "Gray Reserves." 

The Corps, while being largely represented at the front during 
the war, still maintained its organization at home, and in the fall

of 1862, during the invasion of Lee's rebel army into Pennsylvania, 
organized a company of one hundred and twenty-five (125) men, 
which became Company "A" of the 21st Pennsylvania Militia, and dur- 
ing Lee's second invasion in 1863, on June 30, organized a full Company 
"A", and part of Company "B", for the 49th Pennsylvania Militia. 

The Corps was incorporated April 15, 1867. Participated in the 
railroad riots at Pittsburgh and Scranton in 1877. 

February, 1878, when the National Guard of Pennsylvania was 
being organized, the Corps was increased to a battalion of four com- 
panies. Company "A", the original company, was divided, part of it 
forming the nucleus of Company "D". 

On July 31, 1879, the battalion was consolidated with the Wec- 
cacoe Legion Battalion" and formed the Third Regiment N. G. of Pa. 

The older members, knowing that the Corps had been incorporated 
by the Legislature of the State, and that every succeeding military 
law that had been passed had excepted the Grays from its provisions, 
and had carefully stated that the Grays were not to be deprived 
of its vested rights, held a company meeting and protested, but as 
time passed and no relief was afforded, and realizing that it was im- 
possible to maintain its separate organization and remain in the 
State service, application was made to the Governor of the State for 
a transfer to the First Regiment N. G. of Pa., and on December 11, 
1879, the Governor issued an order consolidating companies "A" 
and "D" of the Third Regiment, and assigning the consolidated 
company to the First Regiment N. G. of Pa., as Company "G", and 
the "Artillery Corps, Washington Grays," disappeared from history 
as a separate and independent military organization. 

Looking back over the Corps History of more than half a century, 
considering its formation, the excellent material of which it was 
composed, its laudable ambition, its great achievements, and its 
incomparable record, it must be conceded without question to have 
been the parent and pattern of the militia of the City and State, as 
well as the foundation upon which was erected the magnificent 
National Guard of Pennsylvania if not of the entire country. 

On October 21, 1871, a communication was received by the 
Trustees from Mr. Edwin N. Benson, an honorary member of the 
Corps, tendering "the sum of Two Thousand Dollars to defray the 
expenses of erecting a granite monument, in a proper place, to the 
memory of the gallant comrades who fell in the war for the Union," 
suggesting it be completed and dedicated on the occasion of the semi- 
centennial Anniversary of the Corps. 



IX 



The monument was unveiled at the intersection of Broad Street 
and Girard Avenue, with impressive and appropriate ceremonies on 
Friday, April 19th, 1872, at 3 o'clock P. M., and the day concluded 
with a banquet of which three hundred persons partook, at the 
Continental Hotel. The monument was subsequently removed 
from the place of its dedication to the centre of Washington Square. 
At a meeting of the "Old Guard of the Artillery Corps, Washington 
Grays," held February 22nd, 1906, a committee consisting of the 
Trustees and Comrade Captain John O. Foering was appointed to 
procure and have erected upon the base of the monument in Wash- 
ington Square a bronze figure of a "Washington Gray" in the old 
uniform. The Committee reported at the meeting of May 4th, 1908, 
that they had attended to the duty assigned them, and defrayed the 
entire cost out of the Treasury of the old Guard without assistance 
from any other source whatever, and that the figure had been un- 
covered without ceremony in the presence of the few surviving mem- 
bers of the old Guard at 7 o'clock on the morning of Saturday, April 
i8th, 1908. 

Let us hope it may be permitted to remain there undisturbed, 
while the uncounted years go silent by. 

It is a figure of a gentleman become a soldier, one who has turned 
his back upon the charms and allurement of peaceful life, resolved to 
do, to dare, perchance to die for his country in obedience to the 
instinct of patriotism imbibed in the first moments of life, while he lay 
a helpless babe listening to the beating of his mother's heart. If the 
lesson it teaches be properly learned, love of country will be immortal, 
and untold generations will accept as truth, "greater love than this 
hath no man, that he giveth his life for his brother."
